Mary Louise (Rusnak) Slee, born in Philipsburg, Pennsylvania to John and Mary Rusnak January 15, 1939, was received into God's eternal hands on January 29, 2019. There is no doubt that her son, Theodore John Monroe (Teddy), who had gone before her, was standing by God on one side and her parents, John and Mary Rusnak were standing on God's other side, waiting to embrace her as she entered into heaven. She had gracefully fought a long battle against Alzheimer's for the final years of her life. But regardless of how much this disease can consume a person's physical body it will never win in the end, as it will never consume a person's spirit. My mom's beautiful and graceful spirit lives on through all of her loved ones she's left behind which include: Her Children; Keith, Jacquelyn and Mary; Her grandchildren; Madilyn, Jameson, Ben, Mary Kate, Grace and Jack; and her siblings; Ed, John, and Martha Rusnak. Mary Louise always put people and their needs before herself. She was a dedicated, compassionate and beautiful nurse for 30 years. She equally was a dedicated woman in her personal life, dedicated to her family, her friends and even strangers, and also dedicated to her unwavering faith in God. She truly was a light in this world and a blessing to everyone she touched. Her light will shine forever, as will her spirit. The world has been made a better place with my mom's presence that resonates, then, now and forever through eternity.
